What are the differences between Rugby Union and Rugby League?
The difference between Rugby League and Rugby Union is first and foremost the number of players on the field. Where Rugby League is played with teams of 13 players, Rugby Union is played with teams of 15. Consequently, the Rugby League fields are a little smaller than Union fields.
Points are also awarded differently between the two games. In general, there are four ways to score points in rugby: Try, Conversion, Penalty and Drop Goal. For an explanation of the points system as well as more detail about the differences between the two types of rugby, see more information here.
We also offer templates for a range of other sports types.
